The best way to appreciate the impact of learning innovation and leadership is to talk to people who have been part of the process either as students, mentors, or observers. We present a sampling below of what people say.
Curtis took the Wings Program during his high school years at Warren Hills. He attended the first eVenture program in 2007, and he was a co-leader of the program in 2008. He looks back and reflects on what all those experiences have meant to him.
DeVante is one of the youngest students to work with CPI. We first met him when he was 13 years old. Even then, he had ideas about building a skateboard business, but one that would serve a social mission by helping to get kids off the street and away from gangs by attracting them to skateboarding events. After attending eVenture 2009, he realized his dream when he produced and sold his first skateboards. DeVante is an inspiration, and we are sure he will be very successful one day.
Participants from eVenture 2011
Listen to one review panel member and several participants from eVenture 2011 as they try to describe their experience.
View from Alumni Mentors
Listen to how alumni mentors (previous year attendees who come back in a leadership role) Steve Rosen and Laurie Wagner, as well as some other mentors, describe the eVenture 2010 experience. This video was generously shot and produced by DeSales University students Laura Merli and Andy To for CPI.
This video captures comments from several students in the Wings Program at Warren Hills Regional High School in Washington, NJ. Wings was the predecessor to all other CPI activities. Some of the students also attended eVenture 2007, and also comment on that experience.
